Enclosed Volume, works by Geert Baas, Niko de Wit and Yumiko Yoneda; Ramakers Galerie, The Hague

Yumiko Yoneda

To make a statement about volume, the sensuality of its surface, the bulkiness of its mass, the ambiguity of its content and inclusively a lot more, you don’t need a hundred artists, you only need three very good ones.

That much is clear from the present show of recent and new works by Geert Baas (1955), Niko de Wit (1948) and Yumiko Yoneda (1965) at Galerie Ramakers.

Baas, De Wit and Yoneda are very different artists but their works potentially intensify each other.

All three seem to aim at a certain perfection of thought.

Even in the tongue in cheek looking objects by Baas it is their aesthetic perfection that puzzles most.

There is of course a remarkable discrepancy between the angularity of De Wit’s works and the soft curviness of Yoneda’s objects.

However their differences evolve into a dialogue in this wonderful ménage a trois.

For any group exhibition you need dialogue and space, which in this case becomes a statement of aesthetics..

This is an exhibition to enjoy and wonder, and one which I highly recommend.
